Why have we recently seen the Philadelphia Eagles spread to go back-to-back decline recently? It is mostly due to the news coming from the Eagles coaches, they’re stating they will not be rushing star quarterback Carson Wentz back to the field. Earliest predictions have him coming back in week three or four. This is honestly a smart move from the Eagles because they have a superb backup in Nick Foles.
Honestly though, even if they do not have a hangover season, there is no reason that is a good value for the number to drop. I have the Eagles going 11-5, Wentz comes back when he does, and however, Foles is no precaution in the pocket. Plus, everyone that is an eligible receiver on the field is really a true threat.
The defending champion Eagles have seen their Super Bowl 53 odds drop from +800 to +950 over the last several weeks. As pre-season comes to an end the value for bettors know the reviews of online sportsbooks before wagering is beneficial, in terms of availing of sign-ups and declining SB odds for The Eagles. Now back to The Eagles peformance their decline is partly due to Carson Wentz’ lingering knee issue, which may persist into the regular season, but also the preseason play of Nick Foles, who may once again be pressed into service. The Super Bowl 52 hero has been awful in limited action, going 16/26 for just 171 yards, no touchdowns, and two picks, reminding everyone that he posted a 79.5 passer rating in 2017 before his improbable playoff run.
Even with the announcement of TE Brent Celek of retirement, the Eagles are not worried when it comes to a tight end with guys like Zach Ertz and Trey Burton. With preseason ending and I predict the Eagles PR team will come out with news regarding Wentz before the first game of the regular season to regain some faith. Like I mentioned, Eagles will go 11-5 and you will see the spread start to regain the Eagles favor.
